I have to say that I have been very impressed with your efforts to obtain a satisfactory outcome to my claim and you (Lisa Swales) are a credit to Simpson Millar Solicitors.

Dear Lisa, I'd like to say a very big thank you for what you have done for Connor and us all. 10 year's ago we had Connor and I expected a healthy baby boy but that didn't happen. We began the journey of fighting the NHS for Connor's brain injury and we've done it. Without you we could not have done it & the fantastic legal team and the medical experts. Thank you.

I would just like to say a huge thank you to you (Lisa Swales) and all of the Medical Negligence team who have helped us with this case. We could not have done it without you all
